"Budding's patent lawn mower No 3157, 1832. "

© Science Museum / Science & Society Picture Library

Description

"The world's first mechanical lawn mower was built by JR and A Ransomes of Ipswich in 1832 to a design by Edwin Budding of Stroud. The lawn mower shown here is one of the earliest machines made by the company. Budding patented his design in 1830, basing his grass-cutting machine on the shears used for trimming woollen cloth in textile factories in his native Gloucestershire."
